California Public Records Act (CPRA)

  • As a public agency, the Ravenswood City School District adheres to the California Public Records Act (CPRA) which requires that governmental records shall be disclosed to the public, upon request, unless there is a specific reason not to do so. Permissible exemptions from disclosure include documents that invade an individual’s right to privacy (e.g., privacy in certain personnel, medical or student records), hinder the government’s need to perform its assigned functions in a reasonably efficient manner (e.g., maintaining confidentiality of investigative records, official information, records related to pending litigation, and preliminary notes or memoranda), or if the public interest in withholding those records clearly outweighs the public interest in disclosure.

    The California Public Records Act is for requesting public records that are already in existence. If you are not requesting an existing public record but instead need additional information or wish to pose a question to the District, please click here instead.


    Please note the following CPRA guidelines:

    • RCSD will respond within 10 days from the date the request is received. The response will include the record requested or the estimated date the record will be provided.
    • Please include as much information about the record as possible; title, date/s, department, etc.
    • RCSD is not required to create a record or list.
    • For faster response, please provide an email address.
    • If requesting hard copies, RCSD will charge requester $0.10 per copy for printing.
    • Once a Public Records Request is complete, the findings are open to the public, see archive below.
